This exemplary purpose-built school includes 60 classrooms with flexible learning spaces, a 400-seat theatre in the Performing Arts Centre, Learning Resource Centre, sports facilities, science labs, drama and dance studios, music rehearsal rooms, media suites, art studios, technology workshops, and a Sixth Form Centre.
Winsford Academy needed a state-of-the-art multifunctional print solution (MFP) complete with installation and support.
B2 ensured a smooth transition from the previous print management software and hardware to new up-to-date MFDs including Toshiba reprographics devices and a number of satellite MFDs, as well as providing ongoing support.
B2 implemented a FollowMePrint solution in the form of PaperCut MF. A cashless catering system call BioStore was installed at the school which allowed students to purchase all their school meals via authentication using their thumb prints. B2 tied the new MFD fleet in with the same authentication method, installing biometric thumb print scanners on each device.
The PaperCut solution enabled the school to:
“The price from B2 was competitive and the best value solution for the school. The advice we received from the team was unbiased and comprehensive. The support we have received leading up to installation has been excellent. They have highly competent IT technical support which has ensured a smooth transition from the previous print management software and hardware.” Debbie Beaumont | Business Manager
